Not just one, but over 80 islands that enjoy the benefits of being an undiscovered tropical paradise. The country is not flooded by tourists, nature is largely untouched and the people are friendly and authentic.
Taxes in Vanuatu are low or non-existent which makes the country a rewarding place to earn money. Locals largely depend on agriculture and fishing, but tourism is also an important industry on the islands and you can find career opportunities here and in trade. It’s also a fantastic place for freelancers to work from their laptop and be surrounded by tropical beauty.
There are 84 islands to explore and 14 of them have an area of more than a hundred square kilometres. Many of the 277.000 inhabitants live in the countryside, but a few main cities have a larger population. Temperatures are not too extreme year round and there is a dry season and a wet one.
Vanuatu was devastated by a cyclone in 2015 and the country has shown an impressive recovery in a short time, the island is back on its feet and beautiful as always. There is a volcano to explore, lots of diving opportunities, things to see by kayak, beautiful white sand beaches to chill on and you can even see the islands from a helicopter. And if that isn’t exciting enough there is always surfing, snorkelling, eating wonderful local food and boat trips.
